When building a new Layout, planning is the key, well NOT IN MY CASE.
As you will see below, I started off with Kingsford, North Yard, and Depot, that lasted a short while, then I moved things forward to Kingsley Dale, another change of Plan saw me go to a Roundy Roundy and Kingley Road, now finally from Page 25 /June 2017, I've settled on Kings Moreton, a WR Roundy with a BLT to Much Dithering and some nice Oxfordshire Countryside.
A new name and a new beginning from Page 25, June 2017, now BR/WR.
(change for Much Dithering DELETED)
From page 25, I've changed to a more prototypical rendition of the basic plan, but it will no longer incorporate the Depot, as I wanted more room for Scenic's, i.e Fields, Trees and a Lane etc. I have also done away with Much Dithering, as I needed a larger Fiddle / Storage Yard.
Now BR Blue 1980's from Jan 2018
Kingsley Dale Kingsley Road, change for Much Dithering, starts from page 9 and now as a roundy roundy, so if you want to read about the Yard and Depot then read from page 1.
Kingsford, North Yard, and Depot is an imaginary Yard, in an imaginary Location, so no RIGHTS or WRONGS on here.
It will be run as BR Steam and Green Diesels or BR Blue, depending on the mood of the Day.
The Track has been laid over the last few days, and push tested today to ensure it works, and satisfies my desire for loads of shunting and a busy Depot for loads of running.
Here are the first pics from today.
Firstly a pic of the previous Brit Vic Layout with the Depot section removed to save me having to cut another hole for the Turntable and Pit.
And with the Depot in it's new home at the end of Kingsford, North Yard
Some info for you.
